Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360 | Edition: Standard Edition

Product Description

Dead Rising 2 builds on the combat system of Dead Rising where anything that could be picked up could be used as a weapon, by considerably increasing the number of items Chuck will find in Fortune City's casinos, bars and shops. Just as in the original Chuck will be able to make use of items that range from 'traditional' weapons like guns and swords to the more improvised such as roulette wheels, croupier sticks, wheelchairs and stuffed marlins. But Dead Rising 2 takes combat one stage further with a set of truly unique weapons including the paddle-saw (two chain-saws attached to either end of a canoe paddle) and the self-explanatory drill bucket.

Manufacturer's Description

Several years have passed since the Wilamette incident, and while Frank West was able to save America from a zombie apocalypse, the cause of zombification was not completely contained. This led to continued zombie outbreaks throughout the United States.

Dead Rising 2 shifts the action from the everyday world of mid-West America to the glitz and glamour of Fortune City, America's latest and greatest entertainment playground. People flock to Fortune City from around the globe to escape from reality and the chance to win big.

Enter former national Motocross champion, Chuck Greene. Before he hit the big time with a team and sponsorship behind him Chuck was forced to repair his own bikes, leaving him incredibly resourceful; a real handyman. A single father, Chuck dotes on his daughter Katey who, since the loss of her mother, he will do anything for.

With hundreds of zombies on screen at any one time, the original Dead Rising forced gamers to turn the everyday objects they found in the Mall into improvised weapons capable of fending off attacks. Dead Rising 2 promises to increase the carnage with even more zombies intent on feasting on human flesh and countless new objects with which Chuck can make the undead dead.

The zombie hordes are on the move and this time it's more than just a shopping centre they've invaded. As new character Chuck Greene you're on a mission to save your daughter as the whole of Las Vegas stand-in Fortune City is overrun.

Death by marlin is just one of the hundreds of options
The paddle saw is certain to become a fan favourite
A croupier's stick also comes in handy for zombie bashing
The Russian underground looks worse than the Northern Line

With thousands of zombies (the slow-moving kind) on screen at once you can't shoot them all, so it's a good job you can also bludgeon them with roulette wheels, croupier sticks and even a stuffed moose head you can wear on your head and run at them with.

There are guns, knives, swords and other more traditional weapons too, including the "paddle saw" - two chainsaws attached to each end of a boat paddle. For the first time you don't just get to use these weapons in the story campaign, but also an all-new multiplayer mode where you must compete to kill (or re-kill) as many of the shambling undead as possible.

Key Features
  • Game of the Dead: A new character, new location and hundreds of new ways to kill the undead makes this the most fun you can possibly have in a zombie apocalypse.
  • Lethal weapons: If you can pick it up you can use it to kill a zombie with - from swords and guns to plant pots, stuffed marlins and every type of chainsaw imaginable.
  • Smash T.V.: Take part in the new Terror is Reality TV show, as Dead Rising goes multiplayer for the first time and you compete online to take out the most zombies possible.
  • Vehicular combat: Chuck is an ex-motorcross champion but it's not just motorbikes he gets to ride but everything from golfcarts to a giant Gladiators style hamsterball.
  • Thousands of 'em: The last game had around 800 zombies on screen at once, this one goes up to a massive 6,000. Their bodies don't disappear until you leave an area either.
About the Developer: Blue Castle Games
The first three games from this Canadian developer were all baseball titles and although well received it was still a big shock when they were announced as the developers of Dead Rising 2, working together with Japanese publisher Capcom to create a more Western-friendly game.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT GAME 7 Feb 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Great game, better than the first, good story, loadsa stuff to do, explore, dress up, eat, read, play with. Mix drinks, weapons and such. Just good fun, get it and enjoy.
Only one thing that I can moan about and that's the loading screens, they are annoying and can be lengthy.
Keep stocked up with good foods e.g. orange juice and always keep a few guns on you e.g. sniper rifle's founf in the shooting range shop on the second floor in the palasades area. You will need them foor bosses.
Five stars from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most FUN you can have with a joypad! 7 Oct 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
OK; first things first. I wasn't a big fan of the first game. It was fun for a little while but then I got bored, real quick. I thought the sequel would be the same in all honesty but, as I was bored over the weekend, I downloaded the 'Case Zero' (a sort of 'mini game intro' to this game) demo from Live just to see if my suspcions were correct. I couldn't have been more wrong! I ended up purchasing the full product an hour or so after playing the demo! I then played it to death for about 15 hours minimum over the next couple of days (even after completing it, I kept returning to do the achievements - something I rarely do in any game - but when a game is this much fun...).

I then simply had to purchase the full game to continue fueling my zombie killing addiction; It came today and I have been playing it all afternoon and evening. I simply cannot remember the last time I had this much fun playing a game. It's one of those games where you don't mind dying and realising you haven't saved for two hours because - hey! what the hell! - let's just do it all again, 'cos this time I'll use different weapons/toys. You simply don't mind retreading the same path because you can modify what happens each time. Or decide to do a different sub-mission first.

And here's the important bit: so far (total of about 25 hours playing time and nowhere near the end of the game) IT NEVER GETS BORING! I thought, like the first one, I would get bored killing zombies - no matter how many ways they gave me to do it. As I said earlier: I couldn't be more wrong.

Kudos has to go to the developers as they have obviously spent an awful lot of time with the game engine and mechanics. You can pick up pretty much everything to pummel (or cut, or shoot or bludgen etc.) the zombies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Zombie Game I've ever played 14 April 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Pretty good game, much better than the first!

*SPOILER**SPOILER**SPOILER*

The Main Campaign isn't so bad. You run around trying to find out who framed you on unleashing the Zombies out into the real world while also saving your daughter who has been infected by Zombies and needs Zombrex (Zombie cure) every 24 hours (in game time of course). While running through the Campaign you have 72 hours until the military shows up.. So until then: stay alive, play mini games, explore, do a lot of Z-Slaying, get kick-ass weapons and rescue some peeps! (if you want).

You don't just have to keep following the Campaign all of the time. You can;
Explore the Mall, Go clothes shopping (for free!), find weapons and make combo weapons (there is a combo guide in game and as you get higher level, you get more combos, drive Vehicles (I've only ever drove a Caddy, Skateboard and a Motorbike. There are 2 more Vehicles; A Sports car and a Hummer I haven't used them yet as you have to get a key from a shop and is quite dear), Eat/Drink, Rescue other Humans and sometimes have to kill them as they've gone Mental, go round shops play mini-games which include; Hole in One (Golf), Ride a Mechanical Bull (more fun that it seems), Poker/Crabs and other fun games which earn you SP (Skill Points which helps increase your level).

The levelling up system isn't so bad.. The more you kill, the more SP you get (you get like 500 SP every 50 kills). When using a combo weapon, depending on what it is you do get SP per kill. This can vary from 10-250+. You also get a lot of SP when you find another Human, that Human then joins your party and then you escort them back to the Safe house (you can escort several NPC's at once).

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best Zombie Experience! 4 Feb 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
When the XBOX launched I got Dead Rising with the console for me personally it was one of those games I wanted to like but in the end just couldn't get to grips with it. I found the time limits quite restrictive and the save system a little unforgiving but the core gameplay and the idea was brilliant, Needless to say I never finished it. My biggest mistake was not giving it a chance like i did this installment.

Dead Rising 2 to be honest is very much built on the same foundation while its predecessor was based in a shopping mall this is based in Fortune City which at first probably sounds more expansive than it really is, it is actually more of a giant complex of interconnecting Casinos, Shopping Malls and outdoor areas rather than a full scale City as I first imagined it. But this is fine, the Map is a good size it has a very good variety but remains small enough not to feel too daunting to cross from one side to the other. As before your base is the safe house where Chuck (the main character) can save and any rescued survivors hang about once saved. A new addition and challenge is Chucks daughter Katey who suffers from the Zombie Virus and is only maintained by taking Zombrex every day, and Zombrex isn't easy to come by.

Weapons are more or less the same as before anything can be picked up and used as a weapon. Another big feature is being able to combine weapons in the workshops dotted around the City, just as an example you can combine nails and a baseball bat to create a spiked bat and these combinations are much more lethal. Chucks health is replenished by eating food or drinking and you can only save when finding a nearby toilet.
